Evangelion 3.33 is coming out on home DVD and Blu Ray soon in Japan prompting many collaborations and cross overs with the Evangelion franchise. But Japanese fast food chain, Lotteria, has pulled out all the stops for the latest burger inspired by the series. They have produced what would have to be a heart attack inducing burger called the “Q Dan Cheese Burger” measuring in with a mammoth 9 beef patties and matching slices of cheese.

Evangelion 3.0 Opening Breaks All Records In Japan

This past weekend saw the opening of the eagerly awaited and anticipated 3rd Evangelion movie, Evangelion 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo. By all accounts, the opening was a runaway success breaking all box office records for an opening weekend in Japan this year.

The film took in over US$13.9 million with the film being shown on 224 screens, so in other words, everywhere, and some sessions were even starting at 6AM in the morning for the opening day! Some fans were seen exiting a screening and turning right around only to walk back in and watch it all over again. We hear it was a combination of both loving the flick and trying to work out just what the heck was going in the movie.

By all accounts, this 3rd movie looks set to go one up and better both previous movies.

Prior to the advance preview, the network will be airing “Evangelion: 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance.” And one week earlier will see the screening of “Evangelion 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone” on the same network.

The third film’s title has a “Q” or otherwise known as”Kyū” which is a Japanese wordplay, all the three movies feature classical movements in the movie’s subtitle. The classical movements are from traditional Japanese music referred to as gagaku and Noh.
